Freshly emptied Bourbon barrel 190 l from Woodford Reserve Distillery.
Nestled amid the rolling hills of bluegrass and thoroughbred farms sits the historic Woodford Reserve Distillery. One of Kentucky’s oldest distilleries, the present day Woodford Reserve Distillery is built on history, sitting on Kentucky’s oldest distilling site where Elijah Pepper began crafting whiskey in 1812.
Tasting note: Oak, rye, dark caramel and earthy nutty notes reminiscent of nougat, sweetness with vanilla, the taste of lemon zest, oranges and dark chocolate to the finish. Some mint and cinnamon can also be tasted. The finish is slightly woody and earthy charcoal with spicy notes of rosemary.

Used wooden barrels: Notches in the wood or, in certain circumstances, an uneven base, do not constitute a quality defect, but stem from the idiosyncrasies of the production method and the prior use of the barrels. The usage of the barrel will not be affected by those! The barrels are very carefully checked by us at the exit control against sensor and technical errors. We assume no liability for cracks or splits that occur during maturation. A possible and a reasonable repair is not under guarantee.
